Bio

The dancer Jesus Carmona (Barcelona, ​​1985) has a degree in Spanish and Flamenco Dance from the Theater Institute of Barcelona and Dance. He enriched his training with various masters of classical dance, bolero and flamenco.

As a professional, he has worked in the companies; Antonio Canales, the Guita, The New Spanish Ballet, Carmen Cortés, La Truco and Rafael Amargo. In 2006, he entered the National Ballet of Spain and a year later, he became the first dancer for the school. That same year, he premiered in his first show in Madrid, "El Silencio de la Luna" (The Silence of the moon). His second show "Cuna Blanca & Negra" (Black & White Crib) was mounted by his own company.

In 2011, he won the prize for the Best Dancer in Outstanding Choreography in the Certamen Competition in Madrid. The 26 year old Catalan Desplante just won the trophy at the 52nd Canto de Las Minas de La Union International Festival.

Latest Show

  • 7 Balcones

Partial interview taken during preparation for the show.

"I think it was a combination of everything…winning the prize in La Unión in August, and having success at the Bienal in September, it was the stimulus that was required to raise my head above the crowd and show what I could do, and be accepted.  The Festival gave me the chance to become known, but then you have to be ready and present a quality show.

 

I’m hoping this new “7 Balcones”, a more reduced format suited to the times, will be well-received and we can sell it better.  We’re five people on stage, I’m dancing, Jesús Corbacho and Eva Ruíz “La Lebri” are singing, Daniel Jurado is on guitar and Vanesa Coloma provides palmas and back-up.  The idea is to do a show of 70 minutes, and not have the audience looking at their watches or checking the program to see what’s on next…we don’t want anyone to get bored."

    I saw Jesus Carmona at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston last year and was mesmerized by his talent, grace, fire and creativity. I waited after the performance to tell him so. Please let me know if he is returning to the Boston area in the future.
